7:12 am
was 90%. i'm not that much of a socialist compared to eisenhower. >> reporter: sanders likes to point out that polls right now show that he would actually do better in a matchup against top republicans than clinton would. her campaign argued that's because she's the one who's taking all the incoming fire from republicans right now, a sign, they say, that she's still the one the gop is most worried about running against in november. >> nancy, thanks. a british judge this morning says russia's president likely approved the killing of a former spy. the report says the spy died in london after drinking poisonous tea in 2006. charlie d'agata is in london with new results of the investigation. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the spy was deliberately poisoned, assassinated. his killers, according to this report, must have taken orders from the top.
